NEW YORK, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PIX11, Tribune Broadcasting's New York CW affiliate, has named Mark Effron Vice President/News Director. He will assume his new duties at PIX11 on April 17.

Effron comes to PIX11 with more than 30 years of television news management experience, most notably at MSNBC and Post-Newsweek.

In that capacity, Effron helped build six successful news franchises, growing the stations into market leaders.

While at Post-Newsweek Effron also served as News Director and Station Manager of WFSB-TV in Hartford, CT, the #1 station in the market. Effron also held a series of station management roles at WTOP-AM in Washington, D.C., and WDIV-TV in Detroit, where he helped oversee all news content.

"Mark brings decades of television news management experience and a proven track-record of success. I'm confident that paired with PIX11's talented newsroom staff, Mark will take our newscasts to the next level," said Eric Meyrowitz, PIX11 Vice President and General Manager.
